The Real Sporer: Is this the Iowa House or the set of Gangs of New York?

Excerpted from this post at The Real Sporer

I was there, it was cool. When provoked by public opposition to the
Labor/Socialist/Democrat confiscatory plan to repeal federal
deductibility at tonight's public hearing, Democrat Speaker Pat Murphy
gave a vivid exposition of Cromwellian politics at their worst. Rumors
of the jack booted tactics that Murphy and Majority Leader Kevin
"Bully" McCarthy employ behind closed doors in running the House have
been rampant, but tonight the world was treated to a public explosion
by Murphy. Yes, as you've heard, Murphy cleared the public from the
people's house because the 600 or so people who showed up to oppose
the Labor/Socialist/Democrat confiscation scheme politely clapped for
opposition speakers (who outnumbered the L/S/D confiscation proponents
8-1 or so) and less politely but quite discreetly and softly booed
proponents of the plan.
